Bounce Back Retention Program

We know that very talented and intelligent students can end up on academic probation. Sometimes things get in the way of our ability to succeed. In Bounce Back, we want to help you figure out what those "things" may be and how to best handle them.

Bounce Back is part-class, part-group. Students in Bounce Back meet in a group on weekly basis to strengthen academic skills (time management, test-taking and study strategies) as well as to explore how to become more resilient in the face of scholastic and personal adversity (addressing issues like persistence, values, and stress management).

There is no fee to join Bounce Back but the workbook is $20.

Bounce Back is only open to students who are on academic probation.

If you have further questions, please contact Bounce Back Coordinator Dave DeVito at dev@email.unc.edu.
